you go to other countries, whether they're democracies or not, they don't let you near the home of where the head leader lives, but only in america have we done this. so, mr. speaker, i would encourage the president to keep his word, let the people back in, and if students come to washington, d.c., they should know that the u.s. capitol is open for business, that members of congress, their staff, the tour guides at the capitol visitor center will be glad to take them through the capitol. in fact, earlier this morning there were about 70 kids from westchester, new york, seated here, getting a history lesson from one of our parliamentarian. mr. speaker, the capitol is open but neither the white house nor the u.s. capitol should ever close its doors and ban the people from the people's houses. and that's just the way it is. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired.
